Publisher's Summary

A ringing phone in the middle of the night shakes newlywed Sarah Fontaine awake. Expecting her husband's call from London, she hears instead an unfamiliar voice. Nick O'Hara from the U.S. State Department is calling with devastating news: Geoffrey Fontaine, Sarah's husband of two months, died in a hotel fire...in Berlin.

Convinced her husband is still alive, Sarah forces a confrontation with Nick that finds them criss-crossing Europe on a desperate search for Geoffrey. Trying to stay one heartbeat ahead of a dangerous killer, they become quarry in the clandestine world of international espionage, risking everything for answers that may prove fatal.

Good Spy Story for the Price!

There's a lot of intrigue and cover-up in the death of Geoffrey Fontaine. When Nick O'Hara from the U.S. State Department called his wife to inform her of Geoffrey's death, Sarah said something that caused Nick to dig deeper into the man's life and death. Something was wrong, VERY WRONG!

Intrigue and romance!

Beth McDonald gave a good read. She has a very pleasant voice.

The 3 hours + was entertaining and well worth the price.
